1. Getting the sources

You have 2 possibilities:
1. Download from sourceforge (Download version 1.3.3)
2. Download from source server with git. The git server is git+ssh://mob@repo.or.cz/srv/git/siplcs.git

Download from Git source server

Clone the Sipe git repository using git protocol

[root@randombugs ~]# git clone git://repo.or.cz/srv/git/siplcs.git siplcs

Create a new local branch mob tracking the remote mob branch.

[root@randombugs ~]# cd siplcs
[root@randombugs ~]# git checkout -b mob origin/mob

3. Compiling and Installing

The compiling is very simple, just: configure / make and make install. However to compile the sources just run in a console in the siplcs/pidgin plugin folder:

[root@randombugs ~]# sudo apt-get install autotools-dev libtool intltool comerr-dev libpurple-bin libpurple-dev pidgin-dev
[root@randombugs ~]# ./configure –prefix=/usr/
[root@randombugs ~]# make
[root@randombugs ~]# make install
